Sociocultural & Linguistic Anthropology



The faculty of the Department of Anthropology reflect a range of overlapping specializations, consistent with the diversity of the discipline. The 12 full time sociocultural and linguistic anthropology faculty, along with additional affiliated anthropologists in other departments, are involved in research in Africa, East Asia, the Middle East, Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean, Oceania, and North America. These regional strengths of the department are complemented by a number of interdisciplinary programs and centers on the UIUC campus, which provide a wealth of resources for faculty and for our students—from language training, to speaker series, to financial support for preliminary research and language study abroad.
